Snapple and chocolate

Today I did an embarrassing thing...I left the lights on in the van when I went to work this morning. Needless to say when I came out this afternoon the van wouldn't start. I called Jim and begged him to come help as I was beyond exhausted (I had worked later than usual and been in meetings ALL day) and just wanted to get out of there. And Jim came and rescued me...but he didn't stop there. In the midst of leaving the house very quickly (since it was very obvious I was frazzled) he managed to get Amalea together (and all her needed gear) and to bring me an ice cold Snapple and chocolate. It was exactly what I needed after a long day and he thought about me. Sometimes the simple things mean so much and today the Snapple and chocolate meant the world. I sure do love my husband.

Ahhh! Jim, you're the best,most thoughtful husband! Giving the right thing at just the right time means so much. And Robin, I've always told you you're perfect for Jim. Thanks for posting the video of Ami walking...I love technology since I can only be in one place at one time! Hugs & kisses all around, grammi

and btw -- can we collectively as women please start praising men for these sorts of things more? I swear you are the first blog I've read that speaks kindly of your husband.
